Peloton has been rumored to be releasing a new bike sometime in 2020, and The ClipOut has heard some new details about what might be coming.
The new premium bike will feature a larger monitor clocking in at 23.5 inches. For comparison’s sake, the current bike monitor is 21.5 inches. But bigger isn’t the only change with the screen. The new monitor will also swivel! This all but confirms that bike boot camps are coming.
When I first purchased my bike, I actually assumed the display would swivel backward for strength classes, so I was surprised to find it didn’t.
It’s also being reported that the next bike will include native Apple Watch integration (one-tap connect), and the ability for your bike to match the resistance the instructor calls out. Echelon has this feature, and I think it’s a great idea. A way for Peloton to give it their own spin is to be able to set your starting resistance, and then let it go up and down as the instructors tell you to add 3-5 points, etc.
